Or do you have a different favourite in September?
Nalinki at Angles and Views has started #flowersoverflowers where we can share our favourite blossoms of the week. It seems like a good idea to spread some blooms across the Internet. I am more than happy to join in.
After the blues, purples and paler colours that seem to dominate late spring and early summer, August is full of bolder colours. Reds, oranges, crimsons and deep purples now join in. Though blue still holds its own with hydrangeas, veronicas, agapanthus and fuchsias in full bloom this month.
July is midsummer in the northern hemisphere and the time when gardeners can take a rest and sit back, relax and smell the roses (or even the sweet-peas)! Most of the spring flowers are over by now and it is the turn of the half-hardy perennials and the annuals to show off. So many flowers to choose from, so this is just a selection.
Great Dixter in summer
